The Hyundai Xcent is a compact-sedan offering from the Korean brand in the Indian market. The Xcent is based on the Grand i10 hatchback and comes with a number of similarities in design. The compact sedan looks better in the flesh than on photographs
The Hyundai Xcent is a well proportioned sedan and features all the brand`s latest design language. This includes the cascading front grille surrounded in chrome. The hexagonal grille also features horizontal chrome slats, while being flanked on either end with sweptback headlamps. The front bumper also features integrated fog lamps as well as inverted L-shaped LED DRLs.
The side profile of the car remains simple and clean, with subtle character lines running across its entire length. The top-spec variants of the Hyundai Xcent also comes with 15-inch alloy wheels, although its design is nothing to boast about.
The rear section is probably the best part of the Xcent sedan. The rear profile comes with stylish looking wrap-around split tail lights. It also features a dual-tone rear bumper with integrated reflectors on either end.
Inside, the Hyundai Xcent offers a clean and well laid cabin. The Xcent comes with a dual-tone black and beige dashboard, with all the knobs and controls falling into the driver`s hand with ease. The overall fit and finish is also on par with some of the top-selling rivals in the segment.
The Hyundai Xcent is available in two engine options, this includes 1.2-litre petrol and diesel units. The petrol engine produces 83bhp and 113Nm of torque while the diesel churns out 75bhp and 190Nm of peak torque. Both engines come mated to a standard five-speed manual gearbox, with the petrol receiving the optional four-speed automatic as well.
The driving experience of the Xcent is similar to that of the Grand i10 hatchback. However, Hyundai has tuned the gear shifts to offer sufficient pull for the slightly heavier sedan version. The clutch continues to be light, offering easy driving especially in the city.
The Hyundai Xcent offers exceptional grunt in the low to mid-rev range, allowing for easy overtakes. However, at higher speeds, the engine does seem to fall short of power. There is good amount of torque from the diesel engine, available from as low as 1,750rpm.
The steering wheel is light to use in the city and weighs up well with increased speed. However, it does feel a bit vague and could do with more feedback. The suspension remains unchanged from the Grand i10, offering a flat and smooth ride. Braking is excellent on the Xcent and feels sure-footed as well, even more than the hatchback.
The Hyundai Xcent comes with a fuel tank capacity of 43-litres. Hyundai claims an ARAI-certified fuel efficiency of 20.14km/l and 17.34km/l for the petrol manual and automatic variants, respectively. The diesel on the other hand returns a mileage of 25.40km/l.
The Hyundai Xcent comes with a host of features and safety equipment, including a number of first-in-segment equipment. Some of the features on the Hyundai Xcent include diamond-cut alloy wheels, ORVMs with integrated turn signals, boot lid spoiler, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, fully-automated climate control, steering-mounted audio & call controls, wireless charging and push-button start/stop; among a host of others.
Safety features in the Hyundai Xcent: driver and passenger airbags, reverse parking sensors/camera, engine immobiliser, keyless entry, ABS, central locking and impact sensing auto door unlock.
